Wiktionary Daily Article - William de Corbeil 12th October 2019

Post by Kefa »

William de Corbeil (c. 1070 – 1136) was an Archbishop of Canterbury,
and the first Augustinian canon to become an archbishop in England. Born
at Corbeil, south of Paris, he was educated as a theologian. In 1123 he
was elected to the See of Canterbury. Throughout his archbishopric,
William was embroiled in a dispute with Thurstan, the Archbishop of
York, over the primacy of Canterbury. As a temporary solution, the pope
appointed William the papal legate for England, giving him powers
superior to those of York. He presided over three legatine councils,
which condemned the purchase of benefices or priesthoods and admonished
the clergy to be celibate. He oversaw construction of the keep of
Rochester Castle (pictured), the tallest Norman-built keep in England.
Towards the end of his life William crowned Count Stephen of Boulogne as
King of England, despite his oath to the dying King Henry I that he
would support the succession of Henry's daughter, the Empress Matilda.

Psalm 100: 4

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
